Smack-A-Ball

Grade level: 5-8
Equipment: 4 nets, 4 racquetball balls (or bouncy ball alternative)
Game Description: Start by placing down 4 nets in the 4 corners of the gym, facing inwards or outwards depending how you want to play this game. Create 4 teams, and give them pinnies to distinguish team colors. Each team chooses a goalie who will try to stop the balls from entering their net. The remaining players spread out around the gym. Throw in some bouncy balls and get the game started! The main rule of this games is that players MUST STRIKE THE BALL WITH THEIR HAND ONLY (ie, smack the ball). Players are not allowed to catch, throw, roll, run with the ball, etc… only smacking/striking the ball is allowed. Keep scores as you wish, and add in your own additional rules.
